Difference between Slate and Tiles


Slate is a natural stone that is cut and prepared for use.

Slate is formed from mudstone or shale.

Slate comes in a wide range of natural occurring colours including grey, blue, green or purple.

Slate is a metamorphic rock.

Slate does not require any kind of cementation in order to stay together.
